The Post Office in Ely is still closed – despite a notice in the window of the store saying it would re-open yesterday (17).
The city’s only office, on High Street, was closed on Monday (16) due to “problems with locks,” according to a shop front notice.
The notice promised the shop would re-open on Tuesday but it remains closed today and customers have been advised to use alternative branches in Witchford and Little Downham – both of which are three miles away.
A Post Office spokesman said: “A Post Office spokesman said: “We had hoped that Ely Post Office would re-open today (18), but that did not happen.
“Ely has unfortunately temporarily closed due to operational reasons.
“We would like to reassure customers that we will seek to restore a Post Office service in Ely as soon as possible.
“Post Office would like to apologise to customers for any inconvenience caused by the temporary closure of the branch.”
